“Gobo”

Have ever been to a concert? Have you seen those smart lights that display the crazy designs on the stage or into the air? That is accomplished by what they call a “Gobo” or a Go Between. It is a “lens” that goes between the light source and the object that is being illuminated. It’s…

Stories

I’m not much of a story teller, never have been. It’s just not really a part of who I am. One thing I do know – a good story is one that engages the listener with hope, passion, at times suspense, and any other range of emotions. While I am not a good story teller,…

Beckett Matthew

Beckett Matthew Burleson, you are such a joy. You are everything I have prayed for and hoped you would be. I cannot believe God has allowed me to be your dad! I cannot express just how grateful I am for that or how excited I am for the future and watching you grow into a…

Blindsided

Life has a way of sneaking up on you and smacking you in the face doesn’t it? Sometimes that is good, but a lot of times it wakes you to something more serious in your life or around you. We can see it coming at times, and other times it blindsides us like a line…

Haunt Me

I am sure all of us have at one point, and it is something that can be very daunting. Your reaction and attitude to these situations, speaks volumes about who you…

You’re Not Alone

If you would have told me 10 years ago, I would go through some of the things I have gone through, I wouldn’t have believed you. I would have argued with you and told you that it would never happen to me. How naive I was. Not only did I go through, it hurt like…

Live Like You’re Blessed

So it has been a little bit since I posted anything. It’s been a whirlwind of a ride since getting married a month ago. It’s already been a month. That is crazy to me and I have loved every second of it. I would say the biggest thing I have learned so far, I am…
